The Lipstick League – week of 07.11.16
Question of the Week: Name the last free beauty sample you received that ultimately led to the purchase of a full-size product. I can’t think of the last one… it’s been awhile because I’m not generally that impressed but in the last month there are three samples I’ve tried that I’d definitely buy the full size of. (1) BECCA Backlight Priming Filter, (2) Gucci Opulent Volume Mascara, and (3) Cle de Peau Beaute Concealer. The BECCA came in my first Sephora Play! box and the other two were samples I chose from a recent Neiman Marcus order. Each more expensive than the next =| *sigh*
Clumps of Mascara – Who knew it could be possible to be THIS obsessed with lipsticks? I still can’t get over how awesome these Urban Decay Vice lippies are.
EauMG – tries a refreshing perfume that is inspired by summer thunderstorms in the Florida Everglades.
Gouldylox – I’ve discovered the most amazing skincare line out of Spain and 100% of the proceeds further their research of rare and ultra-rare childhood diseases. (And the skincare is out of this world AND inexpensive. You’ve got to see my before and after!)
My Beauty Bunny – It’s the ultimate showdown featuring Anastasia Beverly Hills, the queen of all things eyebrows: Battle of the ABH Brows: Brow Wiz vs. Brow Definer!
Nouveau Cheap – the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale can be totally overwhelming (in a good way!) but if you need a comprehensive guide to shopping the beauty deals, including how to get exactly what you want AND score some freebies along the way, just click right here!
Olive & Ivy – I’ve got swatches of the beautiful NEW Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadow Palette, and it’s one you definitely don’t want to miss!
Phyrra – Do you have dry skin? I have the PERFECT foundation for you! Check out my Illuminare Moisturizing Foundation wear test and review.
Prime Beauty – says “life is like a crazy bunch of coconuts so why incorporate them into your beauty routine?” She does just that with Skinny and Co. Coconut Oil Scrub and Body Butter!
we heart this – We’ve got swatches of the brand new Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips Collection. As expected, they’re FIRE!
Beautygeeks – Our ManiGeek got into the OPI Washington DC collection; her thorough review includes dupes, natch.
Beauty Junkies Unite – See the CC cream that totally makes your skin look like it’s glowing from the inside out!

Clumps of Mascara is Currently Craving: More storage solutions! Less is more for me and I’m refining my beauty storage. I am soooo in love with these affordable cosmetic organizers.
